Shoo Bee, Do Be, Do Be, Do
Friday the 13th looming in 2 Days. Impending Doom for some. Do you get a sense of Deja Vu?
Frigatriskadekaphobia – The fear of Friday the 13th can be scary for many people.
But, today I want to talk about Fears and how they affects our Success!
Most of you know that I have a podcast, Goal Getting Podcast that I launched a couple weeks ago.
One of the biggest deterrents people face when it comes to Goal Setting and Goal Achievement are Fears.
How many have heard of the Fear of Failure?
The fear that failure is so intense they choose to not take risks. Their subconscious mind will often undermine their efforts to even try.
Many people have a similar fear, the Fear of Success – or the Jonah Complex prevents the realization of one’s potential or own greatness.
How many of you have heard of Napoleon Hill – the author of Think & Grow Rich? He wrote another book back in 1938, Outwitting the Devil, but it wasn’t published until 2011.
In the book, Hill discusses with the Devil how he was able to control people to keep them for being successful.
He also discussed the 6 Ghosts of Fear.
The Devil said the Fear of Poverty, Criticism, Ill Health, Loss of Love, Old Age, and Death are his greatest tools.
The Fear of Failure and Fear of Success are just minor variances of these.
Hill states that the Devils 2 biggest Fears that he uses are the fear of Poverty & The Fear of Death.
The most devastating is The Fear of Poverty. This is the most destructive fear of them all.
It robs people of accurate thought, kills self-reliance, paralyzes creativity, faculty of reason, destroys imagination, undermines enthusiasm, discourages initiative, leads to uncertainty of purpose, leads to procrastination, destroys ambition, and invites other things including unhappiness.
I think this is one fear that most people, myself included, has faced at one time or another.
This fear is put into our subconscious mind usually very early, by caring people who learned it from their families or caretakers. I was raised by my grandparents who lived through the Great Depression. We recently went through the 2nd depression, from 2007 – 2014. The fear of poverty has killed many a dream.
Many people have great ideas or big dreams. They have goals they want to achieve, they have Dreams about things they can create, but never do, because the fear of poverty, fear of not being able to support themselves or their family prevents them from pursuing those dreams, those goals.
As I mentioned, I am a podcaster. This, however isn’t my first entry into podcasting.
I heard about podcasting in 2004. I thought, what a great idea. This will replace Radio some day. In 2005, I was very successful, doing well financially. I lost my position, became a loan officer in 2006 worked hard, in 2007 the market started crashing, things started getting rough. No money coming in, kids in college, bought a franchise, the market there tanked as well because of the economy. I had to shut the business. No money coming in, had to work where I could get it, had to get rid of my house, started worrying about paying bills, being broke, losing everything. I developed the Fear of Poverty. Couldn’t think straight, lost energy, lost initiative. I forgot a lot of things. One was podcasting.
You may know the story, I was taking marketing class and overheard a fellow student behind me state,
Fear is a State of Mind – it is something that one assumes – cannot be purchased, it must be created
Fear of Poverty is a State of Mind!
How To Overcome the Fear of Poverty & other limiting beliefs?
Shoo Bee – I’ve told the story of my fear of bees before. I once abandoned a moving car when I noticed a bee was flying around inside.
I was terrified of bees, UNTIL, one of my martial arts teachers told us that bees were the strongest insect on earth. It was so strong it could move a human being several feet without even touching it.
Shoo Be-liefs that are negative and the Fears that create them.
Like Bees, All fears are small –
I have a new philosophy on Bees and Be-liefs these days. When either one comes around me, I just point my finger at it and say “Shoo Bee” and it does. The Bee and the negative Bee-lief usually do go away.
Fear(s) cause(s) us to not Do things we want to do. They create Limiting Beliefs in our Subconscious Mind.
Limiting Beliefs can be overcome by changing our State of Mind. Fears can be overcome by changing our State Of Mind!
Do Be – Definite in Your Purpose.
Know What You Want and How You Are Going to Get There. Be clear in your own mind and do what it takes to achieve the goals you’ve set. Definiteness of purpose will keep you on your road to your goals.
Clearly Defined, Written Goals and Defined Action Plans will eliminate the Fears.
Do Be – Demanding! Not of people, but of Life.
Believe you can achieve what you want, that life will provide you what you want. Demand what you want and insist upon getting exactly that, with no substitutes.
Remember your dominating thoughts attract, through definite laws of nature. Be Careful what your thoughts dwell upon.

The Law of Attraction – The Secret! It wasn’t really a Secret! It was forgotten!
Do What it Takes
Know what you want and what it takes to get there and then Create Action Steps. Then, Do the Steps it Takes to achieve! – Execute on it! – Just Do it!
When I was reminded about podcasting, I knew I had to get back into it so I could share my passion about Goal Setting and helping people Get the Goals They Set. I set my mind with a definiteness of purpose. I defined what I wanted to do, I created the action plan and then I took the Action.
Don’t just do stuff, but do the actions needed to be successful.
Shoo Bee-liefs that are limiting, and Fears.
Do Be Definite with Purpose
Do Be Demanding in Your Wants from Life
Do It – Now! Action not motion
